Hi, my name is E. I live in work in San Francisco. One of my favorite activities to do around the city is walking. Walking gives us a chance to slow down, for our thoughts to catch up with us. Walking is also a way to for us to connect to the neighborhoods we live in. Walking makes it easier to meet people; to stop and look around. In life, scenes exist as a memory—a meditation of the past and what is to come. Painting requires me to slow down—like walking through my neighborhood.
